Gmailwatcher


I just want a simple email notifier.

I have started to use Ubuntu 10.10 and seem to have downloaded Gmailwatcher - it shows in Applications/Internet/Gmailwatcher. But it doesn't show as installed software in the Installed Software Centre. So, I cant uninstall it. I can't configure it? If I try to open Gmailwatcher I receive a popup asking me to open it from an icon above - but there's no icon there,

I just want a simple email notifier - preferably one which I can add an audio alert.

Please help a newbie

Greetings,

How did you install gmailwatcher? Was it a precomplied binry (.deb), through apt, or synaptic?

There are a couple of ways to remove it depending on how you installed it.
You can list all of your installed packages with
Code:
dpkg -l
OR
a specfic one with (substitue packageName with the actual package name)
Code:
dpkg -l | grep packageName
Then to remove it use
Code:
sudo apt-get remove packageName
Try gmail notifer. I cant guarantee its going to be the best but it looks rather promising. Here is the link to its site http://ahadiel.org/projects/gmail-notifier
Or check out CheckGmail.

Hope this info helps.

--Nick
